Picture this. Ratty infield. Dry, hard, weathered home plate. Neglected, weedy pitcher’s mound.

Well, not any more.

Yesterday, a team from EP Minerals Middleton, TN, took the day and transformed the City of Middleton Babe Ruth League field into something beautiful. Using EP Minerals Groundskeepers’ Choice Play Ball! calcined clay products – infield conditioner, drying agent and mound clay, combined with a lot of hard work – the field was transformed.

Check out the before and after of the Babe Ruth field:
